Boil The Breakfast Early (The Chieftains 9)

'Boil the Breakfast Early/Chieftains 9', released in 1980 was seen as a fresh start for the group, because it featured for the first time bodhreán player Kevin Conneff singing a capella on a beautiful song. (When a Man's in Love) and also introduced flautist Matt Molloy. Said Colin Irwin from Melody Maker of the album: "The rejuvination of The Chieftains has been an education to behold. Just a year ago they looked a skeleton of the band they used to be. And now they've come up with their freshest album for years".
